Love Song

Bryan Adams:
Have you ever really loved a woman?



The Artist:
Born on November 5, 1959, multi-talented and nominated several times for Grammy awards, Bryan Adams is a Canadian rock singer-songwriter and photographer.


The Lyric
s:


To really love a woman
To understand her
you gotta know her deep inside
Hear every thought
see every dream

and give her wings when she wants to fly
Then when you find yourself
lying helpless in her arms

You know yau really love a woman


When you love a woman you
tell her that she's really wanted
When you love a woman
you tell her that she's the one
Cause she needs somebody
to tell her that it's gonna last forever
So tell me have you ever really -
really really ever loved a woman?

To really love a woman
Let her hold you till you know
how she needs to be touched

You've gotta breathe her
really taste her

Till you can feel her in your blood
and when you can see your unborn children in her eyes
You know you really love a woman

When you love a woman you
tell her that she's really wanted
When you love a woman
you tell her that she's the one

Cause she needs somebody to tell her
that you'll always be together
So tell me have you ever really
really really ever loved a woman?

You got to give her some faith
hold her tight
A little tenderness
gotta treat her right
She will be there for you,
taking good care of you
You really gotta love your woman...


Then when you find yourself
lying helpless in her arms
You know you really love a woman

When you love a woman you
tell her that she's really wanted
When you love a woman
y
ou tell her that she's the one
Cause she needs somebody to tell her
that it's gonna last forever

So tell me have you ever really -
really really ever loved a woman?
Just tell me have you ever really,
really, really, ever loved a woman?
Just tell me have you ever really, really,
really, ever loved a woman?


MY PERSONAL NOTES:

Adam's song is one of the most effective songs that is pro-woman for it focuses on the needs of a woman that are beyond physical intimacy.

It is in-fact conveying the message that loving someone is more on the giving and not on the receiving end. It stops the circuitous and dramatic emotional experience of complicated men for the lyrics put them inside their own boxes of male chauvinism.

Adam's song has glorified women in all aspects but has managed to capture music lovers worldwide no matter how some men if not many are against the idea of complete submission when it comes to commitment and fidelity.

This is also a reminder to women who must be able to stand above temporal issues in their relationships to become perfect partners to their respective men.

The word "perfection" here is not advocating an unplausible life but a "perfection" that is subjected to the ideal expectations of two lovers who are entitled to their own privacy.

Love is not a private thing but the opposite. What is private are the expressions that are to be shared by two people who love each other truthfully. How they feel for each other is public not unless their partners are committed to someone else, which in this case, their relationship fails to qualify for the standards set by Adam's song.


This is one of my favorite songs for I consider it educating, fulfilling and enlightening for those people who think that the so-called "love thing" is what they do in their one night stand.

Adam's song has conveyed one truth about loving a woman: wear no mask and as Bryan Adam puts it--
" understand her -
you gotta know her deep inside
..
hear every thought - see her every dream."


Thanks for this song, Bryan.
